Cornwall council urges beach-goers to wear face masks as ‘Covid cases are HIGH'

Cornwall is one of many popular beach destinations for those looking to enjoy the sun this Easter weekend. Local councils, however, have been advising holidaymakers to wear face coverings or Covid masks, as well as suggesting to continue to social distance where possible as thousands of people gather by the sea. 

Across the south of the UK, the sun has shone and temperatures have risen. 

Over the next two days, the warm weather is set to continue. 

As a result, thousands will travel to the coast to enjoy the sun, sea and sand. 

But Cornwall’s council has asked people to wear face coverings and exercise social distancing while visiting the southern seaside resort.

Cornwall is not the only coastal area that has suggested Covid-safety measures should be followed, the Lincolnshire coast has also given similar guidance about mask-wearing over the bank holiday weekend.

Craig Leyland, the head of East Lindsey District Council, which covers the resorts of Skegness and Mablethorpe, said visitors should wear a mask in crowded spaces and maintain regular hand-washing. 

“We want to welcome people to our fantastic coast and Wolds, and all the other attractions we have, but we are just asking people to… make sure the virus isn’t spread unnecessarily,” he told BBC Look North.
